Wasabi (New York)

Wasabi was the dynamic creation of a group of New York City-area musicians that comprised members of Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors, The Authority as well as the feared and revered horns of Arnie Lawrence's Blues Co-Elation. They formed loosely (as this is the only way things are formed in Wasabi) in 1991 with the idea of hitting the stage with nary a rehearsal, letting the groove take over. It is not known how many Wasabi gigs took place, but it is doubtful that the group will ever perform again, as members have gone their separate ways.
Wasabi was:
Rene Lopez - vocals/percussion
Aaron Comess - drums
Eric Schenkman - guitar
Mark White - bass
John Popper - harmonica/vocals
Arnie Lawrence - saxophone
Erik Lawrence - saxophone
